The coastal people of Ecuador (especially those from the Guayas/Guayaquil region) and the people of eastern Bolivia (particularly those from the department of Santa Cruz) speak a very caribbeanized spanish as well. Even though these territories are not specifically located in the Caribbean, their Spanish language accents are very similar to those of their more northerly neighbors.
People from the Caribean region know that Caribbean Spanish hails from the various countries mentioned, and also from Cuba. It is certainly obvious that Cuban spanish has had a major impact in south Florida, in which at least one million native speakers and their pregeny see Cuban spanish as their heritage.
Furthermore, there can be little, if any doubt, that Cuban Spanish is very much a Caribbean language.
